Martin Whelton - South West

A statement from Martin Whelton:

Housing and travel costs rocket under the Tories

South West London is a great place, but it’s becoming more and more expensive to live here. Rents and house prices are rocketing, and the price of travel is going up every year under the Tories. It’s getting so Londoners and their families can’t afford to stay here.

London is now one of the most expensive cities in the world in which to commute. The Tory candidate wants to keep putting up fares, despite a consistently appalling service on South West trains with regular delays and cancellations. Overall passenger satisfaction for South West Trains has fallen from 87 per cent in Autumn 2010 to 80 per cent in Spring 2015. Sadiq Khan has demanded that the Government give control of London’s commuter rail services to TfL at the earliest possible date, so that the Mayor can make sure this appalling service does not continue.
